Vinca Minor or Periwinkle. I love this groundcover. It spreads rapidly but is in no way invasive. Love the periwinkle blue flowers in spring and the evergreen leaves all year! Looks beautiful cascading down rock walls and over steps. Loves shady areas, but does equally well in the sun if given enough water and shade during the hot afternoon. Hardy in zone 5.
